It is important to discuss with your son's doctor how much you are feeding your son, how the milk is prepared and if anything else is being fed at the same time.

Is a milk allergy curable?

Working on it: Several research protocols look very promising, primarily through oral desensitization (OIT) - in other words, ingesting increasing amounts over time. However, this risks anaphylaxis, and is not ready for "prime time". Questions remain as to whether this is permanent (thus being "cured"). However, many, many of my patients (mostly youngsters) have just outgrown it with time, and remain just fine.
